Am definitely going to try this.
I think it's a myth that all horses need free choice hay 24/7.
Working animals certainly don't have that luxury. Easy keepers often can't have all they want.
Horses shouldn't go long...
Yeah, I'd prefer the stall, but I probably wouldn't pay for it.
But he was in full board. Aren't they responsible to keep him at a healthy weight and to call you if he something seems wrong? You may feel bad about being absent, but THEY were in charge of...
I remember watching Canonero race!
If I had one word to sum him up, I'd choose rough.
If I got a second word, I'd choose arrogant.
If I was able to add in a phrase, I'd say, "Values results WAY over horse's comfort."
I thought the photo was awkward. If I were a brilliant rider, as apparently she is, and that was the photo that got published with my article, I'd be a little annoyed that they didn't choose a...
I want to hear what you learn from the vet when she comes out.
ETA: I assume this isn't your first winter with this horse? Does she normally get through the winter OK, or is it possible that the...
I'm a big fan of Dr. Kellon's protocol for Cushings and IR horses. I put all the links on my horse's FB page, here.
Wow. These are nice! Makes me wish I needed to haul tack around so I could justify getting one!
I totally went through this with my fat, yellow pony who is otherwise gentle and trained.
Yours broke out of the crossties, so starting there, I recommend The Clip, one for each side of the cross...
Second the Tie Blocker ring. I used The Clip, which is a similar product.
The Clip has enough give that they don't panic, but enough drag that it hurts to keep pulling on it. When they stop...
Here's a picture I took at a recent clinic that explains it. :)
Is this your website? Because it's the same picture. Dated 2013 and states that he's "been found."
Pretty distinctive face!
Did the trainer who sold him when you knew him not tell you who she sold him to? If so, have you contacted them?
Is the horse registered?
There's a Facebook group on bitting that would be a good place to ask this question.
Can I recommend you guys take a look at Straightness Training? There's a lot of free information online, including at my horse's FB page. I started this in January, and I am very excited about it. ...
Your subject line! :lol:
Well, in that case, I *might* go to a health food store and ask for a calming supplement. Rescue Remedy or something similar. I'm not really recommending that; but I might consider...
Yeah. I think it may depend on the shape of the horse's head. I know a Fjord's head (mine is a Fjord) is very wedge shaped with that thick mane and small ears. It is very easy for him to slip...
I have bought many pieces from Half Circle Ranch. Very happy with her work.
I posted about this on my horse's blog recently. Lots of good information in the comments under the picture, including links to Dr. Kellon.
I went to a clinic last weekend that was 5 hours away. I wanted so badly to take my horse, but I knew it would be so much simpler just to go by myself. And it was.
The traffic going down was...
